Totally shoehorned, but it's one of my better candid shots and I figured it wouldn't fare much better in the Free Study anyway. Indoor available light shot, and not much editing, although I did switch the background from pale green to blue at the last minute.

Beautiful portrait. Kid's portraits usually take a beating at DPC. I think this image has enough appeal (lots of it) to get beyond that. 10 from me!

I don't believe her eyes, such clarity! One COULD say that there's to much blue in this photo. You can't do something with her eyes, obviously, but I think you would extend the beauty of this photo by changing the background color and the color of her clothing. Maybe even check out the high-key technique. Imagine the clarity of her eyes then! Also, her chin appears almost saturated. Could add more light to that part of her face so the colors in her face wouldn't fade. Just a thought!

Nice portrait. I like how the colours bring out the eyes, and how the blue compliments the red of the hair.
